Networking is not a very hard activity. It is just making acquaintances with people and spreading the word out regarding your business, and then doing the same for others. In recent years, the face of networking has changed to conform to the influence that the web can have. If you do the right things, you can network almost exclusively on the internet.
If you are a work from home mother and is maintaining an online business, you might be looking for ways to learn how to leverage the power of the internet to divert traffic to your own money site. Here are some ideas.
Set up a website. Nowadays, you don’t have to be bothered about technical matters when starting your own site. You don’t really need to know HTML and other web programming stuffs. You can purchase a software program that will build the website for you or you may hire someone to design the site for you.
After you have your business site, you should get visitors to that site. So you need to write contents that are related to your subject matter. If you are working at home vending your home-produced coin purses, as an illustration, you can write and publish articles that talk about fabric, the art of sewing and unique gifts, all while bragging the good stuffs about coin purses.
Links. Once you have a website, you have an online home you can invite people to. Owning a website isn’t a “build it and they will come” type of proposition. You need to make that website known, make it known in some fashion.
So how will you do that? Visit blogs that are somehow related to your business niche. In the case of your coin purse business, to illustrate, you might find blogs that are about house maintenance, crafting, sewing, and fashion. Make comments on blog posts and leave a link pointing to your site. People will notice your comments and if they get interested on what they read, they might click on your link. That brings visitors to the website and provides you with a way to get info about your site out to hundreds or thousands of individuals at a time.
Facebook. Many businesses make Facebook accounts. You may have a personal Facebook account, but this is different. You set up a page only for your money site and provide as much information as you can about yourself and your business there. You may also include a link to your Facebook account on the weblog comments you leave, as well as include a link to your Facebook page from your own site.
That can do good to others as well, because you can request people to become your “contacts” on Facebook. If they too have businesses they want to endorse, they can become your “contacts” and possibly find more contacts themselves, which helps their business also.
Twitter. Sure, everybody these days is “Twittering”. It can be a time waster as folks twitter that they “bought groceries at WalMart” or are “watching a horror movie”. But many folks have also discovered the potential of Twitter as a networking instrument.
You can leave a link to your site in your Twitter profile and you may publish twits about what you do. People will “follow” you and you can “follow” them. As you leave weblog comments, or you update your web page, or even post updates to your own blog, you can drop Twitter comments that include links to these things. You may also include a connection to your Twitter account on your website.
It might require some time to get all of these things running, but allot a time to do. After all, it’s all almost free marketing and may end up into big money for you.
